my cat is a small grey cat who thinks she is a panther cat. and likes to attack bigger animals!!!one time she tried to attack a dog that was walking with its owner past my house.Does your cat have these other panther like qualities? Panthers are most active at dusk and dawn, they can travel 15-20 miles a day, often moving in a zig-zag pattern, though they tend to rest during the daytime, travel & hunt during the cooler hours of the night. Panthers can swim and will cross wide bodies of water. They have a keen sense of smell and a field of vision of 130 degrees, they have excellent depth perception but lack the panoramic view that deer have.They can run up to 35 mph but only for a few hundred yards, their preferred method of hunting is to creep up as close to their prey as possible and launch a short spring attack. Panthers do become used to man-made noises and frequently cross roads. Panther cats are attracted to woodland fires, and may stay near burned sites for days as deer and other prey are drawn to new vegetation. When humans approach an area they will either be still, disappear, or attempt to circle behind. Panthers can live up to between 12-15 years in the wild. A male can measure 7-8 feet from the nose to tail tip and weight 100-160 lbs. Female panther cats are about 6 feet in length and weight between 60-100 lbs.Thanks for the submissionMark & Cindi

Panther cat by: bOBBY It sounds to me like your cat is returning to the roots from wich it came, but in a smaller version, and cute too.
About panther cats by: Rebecca I love little cats with big attitudes. Our cat that is the runt of the litter over compensates for his size with a giant size dose of self confidence. He runs towards noises while our other cats run to hide. Nea (our cat) Attacks the vacumm cleaner, dishwasher and other noisy appliances. He is very brave. We keep him inside so he doesn’t get hurt!
